For my lying, cheating ex-husband, Jim. However, his "cup of tea" was an older woman.

A SIN FOR A SIN FOR A SIN

 

Whe was a flawed jewel,

Standing before the judge's stool;

Her ruby lips tightened,

She gold-stained ringlets glistened,

Sea-green tears stained emerald eyes,

And studded jeans draped her thighs;

A woman, who had erased

The girl that took her place

And, in a revengeful fit,

Tangled the house up a bit;

The man she loved testified

And not a tear could be dried;

An unmerciful jury had to debate

This crazy lady's upcoming fate,

But soon, the verdict was, finally, in

For this, the fifth sin;

All were gavelled to silence

To hear the deadly sentence,

But the moment for her

Lasted, in her heart, forever;

She had not meant to kill;

Her hand was forced against her will;

He was not worth a life,

Nor did he deserve the loving wife,

Whom sat alone in the heated chair,

With no one to care.

A sad and powerful poem. Last line is fact. Trust is hard to get back. Some deeds can't be forgiven. A strong story with a sad ending. A excellent poem.

Metaphysically, nobody deserves anything, everything is just right. We don't have idea why, but it is so; I loved the rhythm and rhyme and I liked the story. Why would she not leave him?
